Rugby: Ruck - Coming through the gate 1.

I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a...
Mokie, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

4 blue players must try and defend with shields two gates from the attacking red team.

The ball carrying player must meet the defending players and then go to ground and place the ball. Once this has been done the attacking side must form bind together and ruck the shields out of the way - to 'come through the gate'.

The final red player to come through collects the ball and runs anti-clockwise to the next gate and the next set of defenders to repeat the drill.

The two original defenders must now move to defend the other side of the grid.

COACHING POINTS

If the players don't come through the gate give them a penalty (press-ups).

Change the number of attackers and defenders depending on how easy/ hard you want to make this drill.

Look for good rucking from the attacking side, making sure players only join from the back.
